​Welcome to Cambridge Preschool of the Arts!

As a Reggio Emilia-influenced Jewish preschool, we are committed to building a strong educational foundation for our children through play, social collaboration, and exploration. We strongly believe in fostering children’s natural curiosity as a means to inspired learning.


Our emergent and open curriculum empowers our students to draw their own conclusions through exploring and experiencing, thus enabling them to own their knowledge. Our vibe is gentle and happy, and our noise is the chatter of children’s creativity.

Our state-of-the-art centers are designed to create a warm and nurturing environment with airy sun-lit rooms, cozy corners, and plenty of space to explore, create, and play.

We look forward to forming a partnership with the families in our community, as we believe this is a critical element in a child's early education.

We invite you to explore our site, learn about our incredible program, and reach out to us to schedule a visit!

"This school has vision. It was clear from the first visit to POTA that the school is carefully designed to encourage discovery and play in children."
